Police: 1 wounded, 1 dead in workplace shooting

Police say a disgruntled employee shot and wounded a co-worker before fatally shooting himself at a northeast Florida business.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office reports 34-year-old James Cameau opened fire Monday at Jacksonville Granite, a kitchen countertop supplier.

The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1SvcKv5 ) reports that Cameau had worked at the business for a month and that co-workers say he appeared to be depressed recently.

Police say Cameau returned to the granite yard after leaving for a while and opened fire with a semi-automatic handgun. There were about 10 employees there.

Undersheriff Craig Aldrich says Cameau then fatally shot himself.

There was no immediate report on the condition of the employee who was shot. Aldrich says another worker was hurt while trying to jump a fence but no one else was injured.
